  • If she wants to spoil them, give her other options. Some people don't know how to spoil children other than to give them food. Give her a list of things they can have, or let her buy them some new clothes or a special toy or take them to the park.
    I think that it was not very smart of her to not listen to you, considering their food allergies. Some people just don't understand what a food allergy is.

  • Tell them flat out (even though they already know) that your children have serious health issues and they are making your childrens conditions worse. If they try that crap again they are not allowed to be around your children anymore (even if you don't mean it, it gets the message across how serious it is). There is a difference between spoiling them and messing up their health.
